The organized unit of United Methodist Women (UMW) is a community of women whose purpose is to know God and to experience freedom as whole person through Jesus Christ, to develop creative, supportive fellowship, and to expand concepts of mission through participation in the global ministries of the Church.

UMW is Transforming the world by making a better life for our neighbors next door and across oceans.  We are Loving the community by helping more of our sisters to stretch and grow and to make better lives for themselves through vocational training, job readiness and life skills training by supporting advocacy campaigns to educate communities around the area of economic justice at a local, national and global level.

Call to Prayer and Self-Denial to reflect on the gospel of Christ, pray together and to make an offering to mission with women, children and youth in response to God’s love and grace.

  • EMANUEL HOUSE Volunteer Job Opportunities 

The project is under the auspices of Rebuilding Together Montgomery County (RTMC).  RTMC does require all youth to be 14+ and requires everyone (youth and adults) to register online prior to working on the project.  The online registration includes a coronavirus waiver (copy attached).  Here is the link:   https://sforceco/3hL7GCz  This is the link to register for a project with RTMC at The Emanuel House. The volunteer coordinator for this project is David Montgomery davidmontgomery122@yahoo.com  Parents, please contact him to schedule times to volunteer.

The house is located at 7801 Misty Court, Gaithersburg (just down the road from Emory Grove UMC and close to the Flower Hill Giant).  The anticipation is the youth working outside of the house only and wearing masks/gloves.  No more than 8 youth so we can have 6 working on digging the trenches (2 on each of the 3 trenches) and 2 on a rest break at any given time.  The task will probably take about 4 hours.

If anyone would like to make financial donations you may contact Sis. D’Mitra Lofton (301) 979-2926. We can arrange for pick-ups or drop offs.
